Question about Televison & Video
Your symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.
There are two and sometimes three very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink.
If your colors do not line up at all on the screen this is most likely the problem, and it can be repaired by replacing the convergence IC’s. This can be done but it is not the easiest repair to tackle, as there is associated resistors and coils that can open when the IC’s fail.
I usually recommend that both, or all three be replaced (depending on your set) because if one is bad the others are most likely close to going out too.
You may want to consult a Television Repair Technician, or repair this yourself. If you want to tackle this yourself, let me know, I can give you some direction for the repair.
I have done this repair for around $300.00, but you can get the parts for around $120.00. I recommend the OEM parts, as you can find very cheap IC’s that look just like the originals, but they will not last long.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
